    How did the Liberty Bell crack in July of 1835?

    A:

    There is no agreed upon origin or date for the crack in the Liberty Bell. There are two largely apocryphal stories detailing how the bell came to be marred. The first theory sets the date of the damage in 1824 as the bell was used to commemorate the visit of Marquis De Lafayette. Some claim it cracked as it was wrung following the funeral of Chief Justice John Marshall, in 1835. Neither story cannot be independently verified, and remains conjecture.
